For the price, you would expect it to be comparable to Donovan's or Ruth Chris. The was so-so and the employee's were like zombies. Left still very hungry and wallet empty. They treat what seemed to be regulars at the bar very nicely and cheerful. Would explain why they have a banner up over their sign going out of business... More

I ordered the egg plant ptarmigan. Huge portion and it was wonderful. We had a group of 10 and I think everyone loved their food and drinks. The waiter was very helpful and friendly. Great food!

I ate lunch here today after looking up restaurants in Tracy. What caught my eye was the Prime Rib Stew. I came into the restaurant which was empty but ready for customers. I asked for a recommendation about food and declined the pasta dish that was suggested as I'd eaten pasta last night. My server then suggested the Prime Rib... More

I went back for lunch with out-of-town friends recently and it wasn't the same place I originally reviewed. It was like they have stopped caring about food they serve. They fried the shaved potatoes in the same oil as the fish and chips and all of the potatoes ended up tasting fishy (we took one bite and left them on... More

After reading the reviews for this restaurant, we stopped for lunch on a trip through Tracy. Perhaps we hit on an off day, but the fried food had such a strong fish taste that we sent one entrée back (which was quickly replaced) and left an appetizer uneaten. The service was good, the ambiance average. Would not go there again.

Elegant, small and personal. Wonderful touches made us quite the evening. We had the muscles after a debate between the brushetta. The bread was perfect, muscles perfect, sausage perfect. I had a Stella served exactly as it should down to the direction of the glass. My husband said the coffee was fantastic. Our meals came with salads. Very refreshing to... More

We stopped here on the way home from San Jose. Read reviews and decided to try it. We sat outside, basically in a strip mall, so you sat next to the parking lot. It was quiet and we enjoyed the outdoors even on a hot day. Food was good, service was very good. We would go back when in the... More

M and J Bistro is a great place to go for dinner. The food was excellent, our service, even on a busy night was good. My son had a hamburger (not sure what it was called but that is what it was) where we broadened out and experimented with the crepes. The food was done to perfection and the owner... More

M & J Bistro is a little different from the other restaurants in Tracy, with its gourmet offerings and decent-sized bar. The chopped salad was delicious, as well as the various desserts.
